Male Close-Harmony Singing

Essex Chordsmen are a barbershop chorus based in Chelmsford Essex.  We sing unaccompanied (acappella) versions of songs in 4-part harmony and perform at various venues throughout Essex.

Our repertoire includes songs from the 1950's and 60's, sngs from musicals, and some that may surprise you.

Essex Chordsmen are a member of the British Association of Barbershop Singers (BABS) and there are 70 barbershop choruses in the UK.  Every group learns a small number of common songs, meaning that visitors can be welcomed and share a song or two.
